You can split the three day Combo course between two weekends so one does not have to take a work day off to get your ASA 103 and 104 certs.

The first weekend would be the first day of the class and then complete the Combo class the next weekend.

There is no additional charge for a Combo split between two weekends if there are 3 or more people doing the split class.

The additional charge, if less than three people, to do the split weekend is $150. If there are two people, $150 would be divided between 2 people

    A Note regarding weather.  Our experience over 20 years is that the forecast is much more accurate from a local tv station such as or the government's
    Galveston Bay Marine Forecast for zip code 77565. and similar sites are for a too broad an area to be as accurate.
